White Blend 05: Lightning 2018


Bean name White Blend 05: Lightning 2018
Other info Blend - see description for bean content


We look to update each of our 4 blends about once every 4 months, we always want the coffees in them to be the freshest and for the blends to be tasting at their absolute best all the time. Whenever we change a blend we change the name to help make it super clear that the components have changed.

This is our white blend - bright fruit, balanced acidity, clarity and vibrancy.

Lightning replaces Shadowfax, which replaced Chablis, Cloud, White Dwarf and way back when took over the baton from Jabberwocky. It also takes a shot at Phil-Ter as it makes a delicious cup of filter coffee as well as a cracking espresso.

If you liked Jabberwocky and Phil Ter, you're going to really enjoy Lightning.

As blends go it's a little more challenging to work with than our red or black blends, but full of amazing results when you get it right.
